Smarty, and now, Slots

The slot parlor at Philadelphia Park opened today, and people actually went! I wonder, though, if they will return at a steady rate. Opening day is exciting, but slot machines with not much else around don’t seem all that interesting. Atlantic City has restaurants, shopping, the boardwalk (however seedy it may be) and the beach. It’s also mean fun to watch the tipsy lines of over-excited guys outside the strip clubs. I’ve been to Bensalem before, and while it’s not a terrible area there sure isn’t a whole heck of a lot to do there. Maybe watch traffic build up on I-95.

I’m not too heavily involved in the casino news. It’s a nice though, reduction of wage and property taxes, but how realistic is that? Apparently the board already blew through $25 million. Life is really tough for a board member: “trips to resorts, six-figure salaries, highly paid employees, high-end cars and trucks, and thousands of dollars in dues and conference registrations.”
